SyrupCast Podcast Ep.128: Smartphone dreams die at Wonderland


This week on the SyrupCast, Igor Bonifacic, Zach Gilbert, Rose Behar and Patrick O’Rourke, discuss the ever increasing costs of owning a smartphone in Canada and get nostalgic about the past.

Rogers increased its data overage rate this week by 40 percent and this has a lot of consumers up in arms. The team discusses what this rate hikes mean to the average consumer, why the cost has gone up so drastically, and what we can expect to see from the other carriers following this increase.

Last week marked the 10th anniversary of the iPhone (at least in the States), so the SyrupCast crew is getting nostalgic over smartphones of the past and talking about their personal favourites.

Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team’s thoughts.
